What background is needed to become a lobbyist?

Lobbyists come from all fragments of life. Lobbying is a job where you will find lots of people who have changed careers, since solid relevant experience and  knowledge is primarily what you require to turn into an effective professional lobbyist. A lobbyist needs to be educated, well-read, persuasive, convincing, and self-confident. Though, there are no licensing or certification requirements to become a lobbyist, but lobbyists are definitely required to register with the state and federal governments.
